Bay Area Locals:
Looking for something cool, artsy, and spoon-themed to go to this Friday?
Here’s the project’s backstory, by Courtney:
“About a year and a half I go I met this guy at APE. He was selling these beautifully drawn faces and characters on wooden objects. I wanted them all! I started following Willie on instagram and made him my friend… we’re friends, Willie, right?
Then, about a year ago, Jersey Picker posted a picture on Instagram of a huge pile of wooden spoons. I thought I wanted them all for something, but I didn’t quite know what. I kept that image of a mass of old and worn wooden spoons in the back of my head.
Last, my friend Lisa, while on one of her many trips, posted this pic of a wall in a restaurant and for me, everything clicked. I contacted Jersey Picker to see if he had any spoons left. He had 36, and sent them all to me. I texted Willie to see if he wanted a spoon, I chose 35 other friends and artists from Instagram to participate, and the #3636project began.”
